Its 'then' not 'than' after 'if' .

Also when you face a problem in script run it with a '-x' argument.You will come close to the problem.

Ex:

sh -x one.sh

And if you tried to use actual English more (like in spelling and proper grammar)
you may run into less problems coding, too.


;)



Cheers,
